I totally concur, relate, copy that.

I too came of age in the '70s, and wanted to get a feel for the '60s I had missed, having been too young to runaway to the Hashbury or hang with the Angels with Kesey's pad down the Peninsula or jump on the Prankster's "Further" bus or cut school and go to the Human Be-In.

So when I saw a girl walking down Market St. in '69 with humongus bell bottoms - the bells were 4 feet wide or seemed like it - I fell in love!
